An essence within the heart of trees
allows them to communicate
with other trees to
-aid each other when disturbed
-send secret signals, warnings to other trees
-express pain, sympathy.
The kingdom of trees now cries
worldwide in pain,
watching each other’s murders.
land laid naked, nature destroyed.
Note: I wrote this poem last year. It is published in the anthology, “Writing Through The Apocalypse, Pandemic Poetry and Prose”,
